To live as a human being
Art and culture do not serve directly to daily life.
However, they are essentials for a human being to live as a human being.
A calligraphic work by Mr. KAISHIN is as if it is a picture.
It is an eye-grabbing work.
The work rouses me to think how I wish to write with brushwork like this.
A good calligraphic work is understand what is written and with endearing message.
While I was in office as a chairman of NHK, I had a work done by Robert Heindel on the wall. And right next to that, I had Mr. KAISHIN’s work of “IROHA UTA.”
In my retirement, I took the “IROHA UTA” back home as a personal belongings, and placed it in the most relaxing place of my private resort.
